Well let's see not much happened on the boat the last 2 years. But I did build a house during 2020 and 2021 so that took quite awhile because houses are a challenge, some delays with supply shortages and contractors. In addition, the "attention to detail problem" that I have slowed things down a bit more but it turned out fantastic. There is a lot of it I did myself (built-ins, steam punk tornado shelter, rounding staircase up to a catwalk designed to hold three fly tying stations, speaker wire for future ceiling and wall speakers, bedrooms and such.
Then there is all of the work-from-home stuff like cat-6 throughout, server room for printers and computers, a four camera studio for live streaming to clients, a home office for my wife, a home office for myself, Unifi access points stations, outdoor Wi-Fi, etc. The real blessing is I did most of it under the pre-Covid price arrangement so pricing was decent. And now my old house I am preparing it for the market. This means hopefully I will sell it for a nice upswing.
But the new house, you should see the garage!!! Its about 1,000 sf of awesomeness with garage doors large enough to back in and out the boat with a poling platform, 13 foot high ceilings, heated and cooled (still need to move the AC unit over from the old house). So now I soon hope to be back on the build. Some photos below are of the new garage - my daughter sitting on some new workbenches I set up, a friend helping with some wood paneling.
The large blue bookshelf is what I built my wife. She loves her books!
As for fishing man have I seen some AMAZING water from 2020 and 2021 and now here in 2022. Alaska twice and Montana once, Idaho, and some I may be forgetting. So the fishing has been great. Loads of fish. I caught three steelhead rainbow trout on fly rods running 34, 32, and 27 inches in length over the last 13 months, and lots of other fish. Loads of fun!
Hopefully getting back in the swing of things.
Thanks! The build was on pause for the above, but I am now moving closer to setting up the new garage for the final push. I estimate I have 5% to 10% more left to finish the build.
